There's nothing like seeing something online, and instead of reaching for your wallet and hitting the Paypal bookmark, you head to the hardware store (where you'll eventually reach for your wallet, but the total will be much less) cause you're about to make it yourself.
The Stash storage system is one of those projects. These modern honeycombing cylinders hold your office supplies, cosmetics, crafty bits...even silverware. And when you make it...
